Wrong question ;-) Basically, what you want (and need) to know is "what
do I want to use for C programming?"
It wholly depends on what you want to do. About every library brings
along a matching "-dev" package conteining the headers you need. So if
you want to write GTK applications, install libgtk[version]-dev. If you
want to do some stuff with OGG encoded audio, install libogg-dev and
libvorbis-dev. You can get all this on a needed-basis.
Everything you need to write simple console programs should be installed
along with libc6-dev.
Most (if not all) -dev packages come with documentation that conatins at
least a pointer to further information about how to use the respective
